Environmental Stewardship Award

Congratulations to the 2023 winner, Platinum Electric!

To promote waste reduction in the business sector, the City of Chilliwack launched a Business Waste Reduction Program in October 2006 as part of Waste Reduction Month.

City staff worked with the Chamber of Commerce to establish a Green Business Award, now called the Environmental Stewardship Award. This award is presented as one of the Chamber’s Business Excellence Awards.

We are interested in recognizing local businesses that are leaders in environmental practices.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3...

  1. Let the Chamber of Commerce know you’d like to participate. Nominations starts early September and closes mid October.
  2. Complete the application form provided by the Chamber of Commerce to make your case for being the deserving applicant of the Environmental Stewardship Award.  You may also want to use the Green Business Guide to help identify additional measures that you can take to green your business.
  3. Participate in a site visit and interview by City staff as part of the evaluation process.

We encourage you to understand your sustainability options fully, so you can determine if there’s a better way to operate. Show us how much you can improve over the year. The sooner you get started, the more progress you can make!

Good luck!
